ESSENTIALISTSuunto stepped back and asked, "What do athletes really need?" then answered with the t6, which charts heart rate, time, and elevation gain and shares it all with a PC. The bundled Training Manager software is easy to use. An optional wireless speed sensor ($109) attaches to your shoelaces and, for cyclists, another $109 gets you the wireless bike pod, which ingeniously mounts on the front wheel's quick-release lever to clock speed and distance.

Bonus: Suunto's software graphs your productivity, showing when you were improving your fitness—and when you weren't.

Bummer: Those pods sure are pricey.
